Synopsis

Amazon.com
Luther Allison seemed to be on a roll when he died in 1998. He was back home after many years in Europe, and was winning awards and making a good living. This, his debut album, was cut in 1969 when he was 30 years old. He sang as if barely able to keep a lid on his emotion, and the elegance and precision of his guitar playing belied the fact that he had only been playing the instrument for a few years. If this debut can be faulted it's only in that it relies too heavily on overfamiliar standards like "Little Red Rooster," "Five Long Years," "Dust My Broom," "Sky Is Crying," and "Every Night About This Time." The CD reissue has been expanded with alternate takes and bonus cuts. --Colin Escott

"Yes,this is the first album released by this guitar virtuose of Chicago electric blues school! An excellent job with great songs and perfectly guitar tunes! Really another gem,from the great Delmark Records,with visionary spirit of Bob Koester!"
